I think that it is likely to be the expensive 16mm kodak film. However I have seen 8mm kodachrome films taken with good cameras and the image quality is just as good and sometimes better. I have 200 feet of 8mm Kodacchrome by an unknown photographer of travels in Europe in 1949 and the print quality equals the Medicus films.On a lighter note has anyone info on the use of the word "fillum" for movies. Some years ago I travelled to Queensland and everyone would refer to the fillum they saw at a cinema

I think using the fillum for film is Irish. At least that's how the priests pronounce it on "Father Ted."

Australia has a very large proportion of Irish immigrants. Many prominent people are proud of their Irish heritage,including our previous Prime Minister. For many, the outlaw,"Ned Kelly" is a Hero.
